Spelling: Homework will be set each Wednesday to be handed in the following Monday. It will link to the spelling patterns the children are learning in class that week.  We will alternate spelling homework each week with a paper activity and an on-line assignment on Spelling Shed, (log in details are in the children's reading records.) On-line spelling homework should take about 20mins or your child should play about 5 games, if that equates to about 20mins work. 

Reading: The children are expected to read five times a week for at least 10 minutes. (if the child is still on the reading scheme - they should be reading to an adult at least 3 times a week).  Please note in your child's reading record when they have read to you or if they read independently the child should make a note of the pages read.

Maths: We will alternate each week with the Mental Arithmetic book and the on-line TT Rockstars. (Log in details are in the children's reading records.) TTRockstars homework should take about 20mins.
